Over 2,000 visitors attended our Open Days for prospective last week. Student ambassadors offered College tours, gave talks on what it’s like to study and live at Oxford, and explained a little about the interview process. It was lovely to welcome so many prospective students to College, and exciting to think that many of them will be joining our community.

All our events are priced to break even or are subsidised. We want all alumni to be able to attend events where possible, so if you would like to attend a particular event and are not in a position to do so, let us know as we may be able to further subsidise a limited number of places on a case-by-case basis.
If you have access to a venue we could use for an alumni event or any recommendations, please contact email@example.com
